Processing Visas Abroad at the U.S. Consulate Just Became Faster!

| Feb 17, 2014 | Uncategorized |

Whether it’s been your underage children or your elderly parents whom you dread going to the U.S. Consulate’s interviews in order to get their U.S. visas…. those days are over, for now, with the passage of a new Federal law which provides the following:

  • Children under the age of 14 may have the option of waiving the visa interview at the U.S. Consulate.
  • Elderly individuals over the age of 65 are eligible to have their interview waived
  • Certain Brazilian Citizens may have their interview waived at U.S. consulate.
  • Renewals of Certain Immigration visas such as H-1B, student visas, L, O, E and more are eligible to request waiver of interview at consulate.

Please note that the above summary of law only highlights some of the features of the new “Waiver Law”. Since the law is “Waiver”, it is a discretionary benefit. Working with an Immigration attorney who is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers’ Association (“AILA) is recommended to ensure the best chance of success in gaining approval from a U.S. Consulate to waive the Visa interview requirement for you or your loved one.
